“For the first time in my life I felt proud of who I was
and what I had become because of Ride High”
“When I first joined Ride High I was just 14. I had absolutely no confidence; I couldn’t interact with other children or adults. Horses were my favourite animal I wanted to learn so much more about them. When I got told I was going to learn to ride and spend time with horses I was over the moon!
“It was such an amazing experience as different horses have their own personality, I learnt a lot at Ride High that I will never forget. Trips out were so much fun and I was able to be a part of the fundraising helping the charity. It felt nice to help the charity which has helped me in so many ways.
“In 2011 I was an ambassador at the Ride High Ball with over 400 guests there. I was interviewed by Jeremy Vine and felt really confident. For the first time I felt proud of who I was and who I had become with the help of Ride High.
“I struggled with meeting new people but Ride High introduced me to some amazing and friendly people who I have become great friends with.”
